Revealed: UNTIL SHE WALKED IN by Lila Felix (Formally known as AnguiSH)

Title: UNTIL SHE WALKED IN (Formally known as AnguiSH)
Author: Lila Felix

Until she walked in, Breaker James floated around in a prison of his own making, crippled by agoraphobia.
Until she walked in, he itched for something more.
Until she walked in, his world was in limbo.
A simple note pinned to a corkboard will lead Ash right to Breaker’s solitary world and she will learn that there's more to love than holding on tight.
Sometimes it means you have to let go.

Breaker James (adorable name right?) has been living in a constant state of anguish for 2 years...ever since he found out his girlfriend had been cheating on him and cleaning him out of his money. After that horrible revealing news, Breaker had a break down and can't leave his house. He found solitude there and has no reason to leave. In the comforts of his home he can't be used, he can't be made a fool, and he can't have his heart broken. Or can he?

Enter Ashland. She is like a wild fire that has come crashing down on him and he honestly wouldn't want it any other way. She thinks that she talks to much and her voice is offensive to others. But Breaker thinks it is heaven to his ears. He slowly finds that he wants to leave his confines and be with her and do normal things. But is he really healing? Or is Ashland just masking the ugly truth...that he really isn't better? Some tough love will be his only way to find out if he is getting better or just covering a festering wound.

My oh my!! Felix has done it again and given us lucky readers yet another fabulous book. I had happy tears when the story was over and I had to revel in the goodness of it all for a few minutes. I flew through this one like I have all her books. And when I finished it was easy to see why she is my favorite author. She writes a book that has me hooked from the beginning and I never want to leave the fictional worlds she creates. I would be one happy lady to live in them forever. The real world is so overrated, right?

I am so in love with Breaker James it is not even funny. Want to know what is funny? Every time I read his name I would read it as Beaker from The Muppets. Stupid right? But seriously. I am so gaga over this dude I could scream. Yeah he was a total jerk wad in the beginning but it was just his defense mechanism. Because deep down he is a great guy with such a loving heart. But lord help me, this guy is dangerous and in such a wonderful way. He will have the ladies swooning when all is said and done. Just trust me on this one.

Ashland is a trip. The girl is a riot and full of the sarcasm. Never one to be outdone by someone, she always makes sure she always has the last word. And dear readers, know that when you read Felix's witty banter coming across with her characters, that that is her to a T. She is just as funny as the people in her books. And she always, always has me rolling. 

The story is a great one, although not a fluff one. Not that Felix's books are ever fluff. Because they are not. But the plot to this story is based on a guy with some mental issues.  No, it is not just another love story. Breaker James has some serious issues that he needs to work through and it won't be an easy feat. That is where the tough love will come in to play. It will be a slap in his face but one that he will have to endure if he wants to get better.

I will say that Felix amped up the frisky business in this one. I thought that the make out scenes got a little more heated than what we are used to from her. But in true Felix style she kept it clean and made us want for more. That right there is how romance is done. Imagination people...sometimes it’s all about imagination.

I recommend this to you readers out there that love a great romantic story about a guy and girl who are both in search of something and someone to love. Yes there will be obstacles for both but the fight to be together makes it all worth it in the end. I am absolutely adding this to my Must Read Again book shelf. And I am absolutely adding Breaker James to my Book Boyfriend list too. Oh yes, he is giving Falcon Black (LOVE AND SKATE Series) a little friendly competition.

I am a stay at home mom from the South and wife to the most giving and hard working husband ever.  I love to cook and try out new recipes even if they don't always turn out like I want them to.  I refer to my kids lovingly as the Three Stooges as they are constantly coming up with new ways to reek havoc in the house.  Most recently that included putting a rubberband on the kitchen sink sprayer so it would douse me when I did the dishes.  I love to go to roller derby bouts and read in my spare time.  I write mostly at night when the house is silent and I can sneak cookies without having to share!  If you're into stalking, try under the Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana, but watch out for gators!!
